>> plus, signals the syrian regime is is shifting its chemical weapons. >> there has been some intelligence that with regards to some of these sites that there has been some movement. >> important because, remember this? >> a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. >> shepard: so now what? and a plane headed toward mount every rest reportedly hits a bird and goes down hard. >> when the plane initially crashed, there were still people inside alive and screaming out for help. >> shepard: tonight, disaster near the top of the world. but first from fox this friday night, chemical weapons on the move inia. defense secretary leon panetta now confirms new intelligence now shows movement at some of that country's suspected chem al weapons sites.
4:01pm
troublesome because syria's leader bashar assad has repeatedly proved he is willing to murder innocent civilians. and activists say 30,000 people have died during the uprising over the last year and a half. but secretary panetta says in this case, it looks as if the syrians are just shifting the chemical weapons to better secure them. and he does not note any evidence that the regime is preparing to actually deploy those weapons. >> while there has been some limited movement, again, the major sites still remain in place. still remain secure. >> we hope he is right. last month, president obama said his administration made clear to the syrian regime that if we start seeing a government moving around, quote: a whole bunch of weapons that would be a red line. so far there is no word from the white house about whether this latest movement means syria has crossed that red line. but the white house is taking other steps. we know that to target the syrian regime. in fact, today, secretary of state hillary clinton attended a meeting at the united

nations and pledged another $45 million to help the opposition in syria. those rebels who are trying to force out their brutal and bloody leader. it's fox top story and jonathan hunt is in it -- on it live at the united nations tonight. do we have any indication of what those rebels, who are opposing rat jesus' name plan to do with that money? >> well, what we are told by 15 million of the 45 million will go towards communication equipment for the rebels. something that the u.s. has previously funded. the other 30 million, according to secretary of state clinton will go toward humanitarian aid. >> as more parts of syria's control slips from the regime, to the opposition, we're supporting civilian opposition groups as they begin providing essential services. reopening schools, rebuilding
4:03pm
homes, and the other necessities of life. >> >> of course, what the opposition really wants is action from the united nations security council. but absent still the support of russia and china, that quite simply, shep, is not going to happen. >> shepard: jonathan, what more do we know about the movement of these chemical weapons in syria. >> u.s. officials appear to know very little. that may be part of the problem. because, quite simply, shep, while secretary panetta said that these chemical weapons have been moved, they don't know exactly who has had access to them. listen to this. as to, you know, the movement of some of these materials and whether or not they have been exposed to possession by the opposition or others that's
4:04pm
something i don't have any firm information to confirm that's that's taken place. >> secretary panetta saying he does not know whether the opposition has got perms of chemical weapons. he and other officials have previously said among that opposition are al qaeda elements. shep? >> shepard: jonathan hunt live at the united nations. president obama and governor romney are set to take off next week in the first presidential debate of this election. pressure is on, no doubt, with less than six weeks until election day and early voting already underway in many states. and a fundraiser today, president obama focused on a theme of political unity. >> i'm not fighting on behalf of rich values or poor values or 47% values. >> the republic nominee expressed optimism about his chances in that key battleground each as he appeared to acknowledge it will be an uphill battle. >> we really would shock

4:06pm
serious answers and accounting for what's happened in libya the last couple of days. mr. romney has been sparring with rob portman the senator from ohio with mock debates. he will spend literally the next four days off the campaign trail heading preparing for it he will head to denver on monday. debate preps in boston. more closed door rehearsals leading up to wednesday. knows this is a big opportunity for him to regain momentum having slid in the polls for several weeks now. he talked a little bit on campaign plane as he was on his way back from philadelphia to boston where he will spend the weekend doing more research. watch. >> they will make the decision on what they believe is the best interest of the country and their own family. i expect to be able to describe that in a way people will understand. and if they do, i will get elected. romney was referring to the first opportunity to stand face to face with president obama and call him on what mr. romney has said has been a mischaracterization and

4:08pm
of course, that source was the satirical newspaper the onion. the onion article reads and i quote: i like him better, said west virginia resident dale along with 77% of rural caucasian voters confirmed he would much rather go to a baseball game or beer with ahmadinejad, a man repeatedly denied the holocaust and has had numerous political prisoners executed than spend time with obama. needless to say, that's hogwash. we learned today of possible security flaws at the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya where people killed our ambassador and three other americans. problems with the windows. the doors, the walls. coming up, you will see exactly why one security expert says that consulate was below standards. that's coming up as fox reports live tonight.

at the moment. both the radars -- raiders and the rams left the city after the 94 season. i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report. this the bottom of the hour and time for fox top story. intelligence sources telling fox news there were serious security problems at the consulate of benghazi before this month's attack. gunmen killed four americans, including our u.s. ambassador in that assault on the consulate on november the 119 catherine herridge has this. she is live from washington tonight. what were the security flaws, cath rib? >> shep, a former regional security officer who worked for the state department in the middle east telling fox that the u.s. consulate had to be classified as a, quote, critical threat terrorism or civil unrest posting. what follows from that classification are specific physical security standards, which include reinforce windows and doors. gragd is only accessible for the and not where official business taking place.
4:30pm
dictate specific widths of the metal, the rebar and the depth of the cement used to secure the window and door frame on the perimeter walls must be three meters in height and buildings set back at least 100 feet. this enhanced security is designed to create an hour of time where classified documents are burned and to call in emergency evacuation personnel. we asked today at the state department whether the consulate met these required security standards and if not if waivers were approved and we were told there was really nothing to add until that state department internal investigation is complete, shep. >> shepard: now the nation's top intelligence official weighing in on this? >> well, that's right, the statement from the director of national intelligence or dni seems to give coverage to the administration while at the same time acknowledging that benghazi was terrorism. there was information that led us, the intelligence community to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our grammies in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch
4:31pm
officials. as we learned more about the attack we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information indicating that it was deliberate and organized terrorist attack. but administration officials, including ambassador susan rice seemed to go beyond that guidance, stating that benghazi was a demonstration prompted lie that youtube video that spun out of control and fox news was first to report that there was no ongoing demonstration when that attack unfolded, shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington tonight. catherine, thanks very much. >> you're welcome. >> shepard: president obama spoke with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu today about how to deal with iran's suspected nuclear ambitions. according to the white house the two leaders shared goal of preventing iran from making atomic weapons. second phone call amid tension over the prime minister's push for the u.s. to make amore aggressive stance. governor romney spoke with the leader by phone and renewed his attacks on the president for his foreign policy. ed henry with the news live from the white house tonight. president obama is taking heat for not meeting with benjamin
4:32pm
netanyahu face to face and today vice president biden addressed that, right? >> that's right, shep. vice president biden many times has gotten into trouble for veering off message and saying something maybe the white house didn't want him to say. today was a case where he stood up for the president. he was at an event where he is supposed to be talking about medicare down in florida with senior citizens. he took a moment out to say wait a second, stop these attacks on the president over israel. take a listen. >> i want to tell you how proud i am. how proud i am to stand shoulder to shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel's physical security than any president. >> top white house officials insists during this call with the prime minister today president obama made clear that these two leaders are on the same page and they have the same goal, which is to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. now, how they do that whether it's through military action, whether it's through diplomacy, that's still a little bit shaky, they insist
4:33pm
the goal is still the same, shep. >> shepard: what do we know about governor romney's conversation with the israeli leader. it's my understanding they have been friends for a while. >> they have been. there have been suggestions that maybe the prime minister is rooting for a romney victory. something he has denied. but what's interesting is you saw the prime minister yesterday waiving that red magic marker and showing that little graphic about what he calls a red line in preventing iran from getting -- enriching a certain amount of uranium so they could get nuclear weapons. what's interesting about the romney call is when he came out and talked about it he made clear he embraced that red line something the president didn't. take a listen. >> we spoke about the greatest national security threat that he faced, the world faces which is iran with nuclear capability. we spoke about his assessment of where the red line ought to be drawn. and my own views with regards to iran. >> now, as he said, exactly where that red line should be
4:34pm
drawb. whether that means there should be u.s. military action potentially down the road to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons very likely to become a big issue in these presidential debates later on. not the first one which is about the economy this coming week. but you have got one on national security and foreign policy coming up. likely to be a big issue because the president is going to press mitt romney and whether he is pushing for actual u.s. military action. >> ed henry at the white house. thank you. we are learning more about the suspect in the colorado movie theater massacre in aurora. according to newly released court documents. prosecutors say that university of colorado barred james holmes from its campus after he threatened a professor. court officials did not release that person's name but the allegation does conflict with previous statements from university officials who had said they denied holmes access to nonpublic areas because he dropped out of school. other court documents show the defense denies the prosecution's allegations. police say that back in july james holmes killed 12 people and wounded a dozen more
4:35pm
during a mid night screening of the latest batman movie. alicia acuna live in our rockie mountain newsroom it's our understanding the judge is keeping a lot of this case under wraps, still. >> that's right. despite 57 different court documents released today, a lot of it redact and they actually released this one to us. if you look at it. there is really not a whole lot there yeah, they gave this to us. we did pull one quote for you so that you can kind of try to make something of this. it reads police chief abraham then removed the redacted from the redacted and held it by the redacted to make sure that there was nothing redacted. we figured out that's in reference to the handling of the notebook holmes mailed to his university psychiatrist dr. lynn fenton. according to filings, a bomb squad technician put it through an x-ray machine and that notebook had a post-it on it which was redacted, shep? >> shepard: alicia, what else
4:36pm
did we learn about this supposed threat that he made to the university? >> well, we learned in open court that the prosecution accused homes of making a threat. made toward a professor. district attorney claims that holmes was kicked out of school because of it. because of it the university is denying that saying he withdrew. we also see the defense fighting this accusation. even attempting to get the judge to sanction the prosecution for even making that claim. so a lot of legal maneuvering. and one piece of evidence was a denver post article on that threat. part of that public article was also redacted. shep? >> shepard: alicia acuna live in denver this evening. alicia, thanks. the homeland security chief janet napolitano is calling for congress to do something already about the growing number of cyber attacks. interestingly she claims she does not even use email. that's coming up. plus, apple issued a rare apology to all of its customers over that new mapping software.
